A principal research engineer at SRI’s Advanced Imaging Lab shares the challenge — and the joy — of building products that benefit the world.
Advanced imaging systems
DARPA and SRI seek to create night vision glasses that see clearly even in the darkest of situations.
Next-generation welding helmet gives unprecedented scope and clarity for better productivity, accelerated training
XDR weld visualization technology gives welders full 3D view of workspace, as smart helmet collects data to help train new technicians.
Tracking Elevated Pollution Layers with a Newly Developed Hyperspectral Sun/Sky Spectrometer (4STAR): Results from the TCAP 2012 and 2013 Campaigns
We compare results with coincident measurements. We find 0.045 g/cm2 (4.2%) negative bias and 0.28 g/cm2 (26.3%) root-mean-square difference (RMSD) in water vapor layer comparison with an in situ hygrometer and an overall RMSD of 1.28 g/m3 (38%) water vapor amount in profile by profile comparisons, with differences distributed evenly around zero.
The favorable intercomparisons herald 4STAR’s spatially-resolved high-frequency hyperspectral products as a reliable tool for climate studies and satellite validation.
On the Potential to Enhance the Spatial Resolution of the Day/Night Band (DNB) Channel of the Visible and Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIRRS) for the Second Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS-2) and Beyond
This paper examines the feasibility and potential benefits of enhancing the spatial resolution of the VIIRS DNB channel for the JPSS-2 mission and beyond.
This study provides evidence of metabolite differences in the caudate nucleus, a brain region of potential importance to our understanding of the neural deficits underlying FXS.
Test results establishing the performance of the instrument against the full range of operational requirements are presented, along with calibration, engineering flight test, and scientific field campaign data and results.
We present the design and pre-launch performance of the Solar Orbiter Heliospheric Imager (SoloHI) which is an instrument prepared for inclusion in the ESA/NASA Solar Orbiter mission, currently scheduled for launch in 2020.
